Contractors would be treated like a work slaves. Employees are expected to work on weekends. They take it granted without concerning about developers burnt-out
Cons
Stressful work life

Diverse culture. Can learn a lot. Though there are a lot of Indians working there, they bring a lot of out of the box solutions to the table. Great working with a diverse set of people.

A typical workday can be very busy to very lax depending on the time of year. Learned a lot due the exposure to explore new technologies. Management is good but felt that there is always that something lacking in terms of promoting and rewarding loyalty and skill. Challenges are the long hours put in due to rushing for timeline but made bearable with the group of colleagues working together

I was assisting with securities settlement for Wealth clients. I also helped to prepare reports for managers and other ad hoc duties. In every job the hardest part is probably committing to overtime if required. I remember there were some problems that caused a large volume of backlog stuck in the system till late and I have to clear the securities quantities as they cant be carried forward to the following date. I voluntary stayed till 10pm and 12am a few times. Thankfully, I was living very close to my workplace. The enjoyable part of the day was to leave on time and there are free shuttle bus service to certain allocated points provided. On special occasions, we were given "free" food from the company or the department team lunch for team bonding or fruit day/treats for their employees. I guess that is the perks of working for a huge enterprise.

Organise lots of activities for staff after work but it is tough to attend as we need to sleep after a whole night of work.
For night shift we are multi trained to answer all sorts of enquiries from banking, credit cards to investments related.

As a Chinese customer service officer, we have to attend to Chinese calls apart from English. The Chinese calls tend to be long and often exceed our KPIs. We have to try and shorten the subsequent calls to average out . It is very challenging and could be stressful too.

During night and early morning, there is downtime for system maintenance, the incoming calls could be very challenging as customers are angry that certain functions are not available over digital banking.

We have our annual dragon boat race and this a family event and also the Bank’s annual dinner. We also have activities for call centre too.
Pros
Graveyard shift is suitable for me
Cons
Hot seating

Pros

A good opportunity being an intern in DBS. Good work culture and the staff there are mostly friendly and approachable. DBS always give opportunities for their employees to progress. They believe in mobility, hence there are a lot of opportunities for the staff to explore different part of the bank.

Being in a customer service related department is challenging, which requires adequate and proper training. In a fast pace industry, empowering employees and enhancing necessary tools for the relevant work is important. Not much work-life balance probably due to the emphasis on service excellence and the nature of the industry. Stress is high, customers can get abusive at times
Cons
Long hours, Ot
